3 teens sentenced after fire at historic mill

Posted: Updated:
DOUGLASVILLE, Ga. -

Prosecutors say three teenagers accused of setting fire to a historic cotton mill west of Atlanta have been sentenced to a probation detention center and will do community service.

Douglas County District Attorney's spokesman Andrew Agan said the teens pleaded guilty to burglary and second-degree arson in connection with the May fire at the General Western Cotton Mill in Douglasville.

Agan tells The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (http://bit.ly/ZwmDf9) that the suspects -- 19-year-olds Adrian Bond and Terry Carringer and 18-year-old Jeromie Hand -- were sentenced to 60 to 120 days in the detention center.

Authorities said a Facebook tip and an incriminating video led them to the suspects. Douglas County Sheriff Phil Miller said one suspect commented on cell phone video that "it's the best bonfire ever built."
